All the talk about incorporating Skidaway Island has other parts of Chatham County weighing their options, too.


From the Savannah Morning News:

“It was standing room only at the Frank Murray Community Center on Whitemarsh Island Tuesday night, where residents living on the unincorporated islands east of the Wilmington River signaled they’re ready to consider forming their own city.

The yeas far outnumbered the nays when organizers of the meeting called for a consensus vote on whether Oatland, Talahi, Whitemarsh and Wilmington islands should examine incorporation. Now, spokesmen for the four islands will petition their representatives in the Georgia Legislature to authorize some $30,000 in state funding next year to conduct a study into whether forming a city from these unincorporated Chatham County communities makes sense.”
